The history of Memphis football is pretty bad. There's no way to sugar coat this. Now Memphis is going up the ladder to compete against better competition. How will Memphis cope? Will they see recruiting advantages now that they are in the BE? I like Memphis but I'm skeptical that their FB prowess will get better once they are in the BE. Time will tell, but I think Memphis was a BB add to pacify Georgetown, Villanova, etc.

I think it's easy for everyone to come up with new configurations for conference alighments. But what about discussions on how the recent conference moves will pan out? I think this is also a good discussion that is being overlooked at the moment.

What are your thoughts?

I know a number of the Memphis fans may feel hurt and/or saddened by this thread. Believe me, I'm one of the biggest Memphis fans out there. However, I do have concerns that Memphis will have a lot of trouble in a better FB conference. Just my take.

Look at Indiana. Why not attack them. Then again, those are not Big East teams so there is no reason to attack them.

Its a legitimate question. Besides, we know Duke won't compete until they stumble on another Steve Spurrier (who led them to their last ACC title in 89).

Might want to check your history, the split the title 94.

I think Memphis will be fine. IT may be rough the first couple of years, but I know they have experienced an upswing in recruiting. Also, Memphis has great high school football, so that will help them. Third, my family and I went to the Liberty Bowl last year. IT was great. Memphis is a great city. We have been to five bowls in the last six years and the Liberty and Memphis was by far the best bowl. Cincinnati has played Memphis for years in football and basketball. I look forward to that continuing. The stronger the Big East teams, the more consideration we all receive during bowl selection.
